A top-50 national liberal arts college, Centre College provides a personal education that enables students to achieve extraordinary success. The Washington Post calls Centre “one of the premier intellectual gathering points in its region.” Centre’s education is personal. You’ll make choices—about internships, study abroad, joint research, completing one or two majors in four years, or even designing your own major—that reflect your talents and interests. Your teachers will ask you to do your best—and work one-to-one to help you achieve success in an exciting, stimulating environment. Your fellow students also enhance your Centre experience. They’re bright (winning top national awards, including Rhodes, Fulbright, and Goldwater), fun-loving, and friendly. You’ll form relationships that last a lifetime.
Centre is committed to providing a learning experience that reflects your individual interests and abilities. The Centre Commitment guarantees students who meet the College’s academic and social expectations an internship, study abroad, and graduation in four years.
If a student meets the College’s academic and social expectations and is unable to secure the components of the Centre Commitment within four consecutive years of enrollment, the Centre will provide up to an additional year of study tuition-free.
